It’s that time of year again! Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, which means my blog gets lit up with Cupid’s Hunt shenanigans.
What is Cupid’s Hunt? Glad you asked:
Cupid’s Hunt is the premiere online collaboration event where DJ and
podcasters from all over the Internet release loved-themed music mixes
all on the same day: Valentine’s Day!
Since I am such an avid lover of love songs, each year I pick a theme for my Cupid’s Hunt selection. This year, I decided to pick my favorite love songs by Michael Jackson. Continue reading “Cupid's Hunt: MJ's Love”

About My Pick: Booti Call by Blackstreet
I wasn’t too sure of what to pick for this exchange. All the cool George tracks were chosen (not like I know of many). I picked this track because I think George might have an appreciation for throwback tracks to this time period. In addition, the track samples George Clinton’s Atomic Dog, so that’s almost George-y, right? This song is pretty dope in my book, one of my favorite Blackstreet tracks.
Today I am happy to introduce to you a weekly podcasting-ish/mixtape collabo project that I am apart of. It’s called The Exchange and it’s composed of me and 11 of the freshest people on the Internets. Every week we pick a theme, submit a track, and put it all together for you and yours.
Who are the 12 Freshest People On The Internets?
Glad you asked. For the record:
Why is it called The Exchange?
Because it’s a dope name, and because we are all friends (and/or friends of friends) strewn across the world but we all connect digitally, daily, in many different locations online.
What’s the first edition?
Say My Name.
What’s the tracklist, and who chose what?
